Soba noodles are a thin, delicate buckwheat noodle that plays an integral role in Japanese cuisine. Did we mention, they’re pretty versatile too – you’ll find them chilled accompanied by a dipping sauce, in soups or even in a stir-fry. Keep reading to discover some of our go-to plant-based soba recipes. 

Our favourite plant-based soba recipes 

From fuss-free lunches to quick and flavoursome dinners, the soba noodle lends itself to soaking up flavours and taking on a variety of textures. Here are some vegan recipes we find ourselves returning to over and over again.  

Vegan soba noodles peanut sauce recipe

This crispy tofu and peanut stir-fry recipe comes from our Food Editor, Val. It can be made with whatever kind of noodles you have to hand, but soba is our go-to in this case. This dish strikes the perfect balance of rich peanut sauce with lighter notes of fresh ginger, rice vinegar and spring onions and it all comes together in half an hour.

This dish is self-described as slurpable noodles by the recipe author, Connoisseurus Veg. It’s a cosy soup consisting of hearty tofu and vibrant veggies in a rich and warming white miso broth. This dish is ideal for any colder days, moods or even if you’re feeling slightly under the weather.

Here’s a spicy and creamy sesame-cashew soba noodle salad made from nutrient-rich whole foods from Rainbow Plant Life. Soba noodles have a hearty, nutty flavour that lends itself perfectly to this dish. They help balance the sweet, tangy and spicy sauce, rich fried tempeh and fresh edamame, carrots, radish slices and al dente broccoli. This meal can be enjoyed hot right away but has a second lease of life when eaten cold the next day.
